This is "Worried" Martina (almost 2 yr old), the daughter of a good friend of mine. I think you will find her (or her (beautiful) 8 yr old sister) a lot in DPC, they are my fav models!

As you can see Martina has really really good looking eyes, containing various shades of blue. At this time she was starting to get mad at me (that explains her "worried" face) after a long shoot session! The important thing is I got the face I was after! :)

Processing? Really easy, added a lot of bright (+120 or so) in order to make the high key, no levels, curves, sat, no nothing, just added bright, added the simple frame and saved for DPC.

Note: I think high key works wonderful here, hope voters think the same! I really like this one.... aiming to my first ribbon? Crossing fingers!

The flash is way too bright and makes the face overexposed and makes it look flat.

great eyes, but this is more a portrait than an eyes picture
